A charming, cosy, traditional farmer's cottage set in the quiet rural surroundings of North Antrim farmland. A wealth of oldie-worldy furnishings including exposed beams, feature fireplace and woodburner. The cottage offers comfortable accommodation for families or friends wishing to explore the Causeway Coast.First opened in March 2014 following an extensive renovation and conversion the Bothy recently featured in an article in 'Farm Week' which describes it as "a cottage of unusual appeal …. Fabrics and wall colours of pale pastel greens, subtle, soft light shades which merge with the atmospheric dimensions of this incredible building, don't overpower the senses yet leave one with the comfortable feeling of being immersed in a homely cottage ….. Each room is a journey into the dream world of relaxed charm and restfulness."The Bothy dates back to the 1700s but has recently been fully modernised whilst retaining all its original charm. The thick walls, modern insulation and central heating ensure that it is beautifully warm throughout the year whilst the fully equipped kitchen has an energy efficient oven/hob and appliances that are all A-rated or higher.

"Perfect in every way."
What can I say, apart from sorry this review took so long April. You were the perfect host, baking for our arrival, and providing breakfast for the next day. The cottage was beautiful, warm and very comfortable. Lots of storage, and parking. I would say this place makes the perfect base for touring the Northern coast by bike, or just getting away to a quiet corner of NI. Should I return to NI, I know exactly where I'll be staying.
It is great to hear from you and thank you for your kind review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you hope to come back again. Warmest regard, April
